Samsung’s 12-inch Galaxy Note gets snapped before big release

As PhoneArena spotted recently, the tablet has quietly been filed under the name of the Samsung SM-P905 at the FCC.

Precious few details are available in the way of specs although the tablet’s diagram points to a stylus port for Samsung’s acclaimed S-Pen. A purported benchmark test from AnTuTu would seem to indicate that the tablet has an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution display, the quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of storage and dual-facing cameras (8MP snapper on the rear, 2MP camera on the front).

Intel’s next Bay Trail processors could make for even cheaper Android tablets

Unnamed sources from “tablet players” told Taiwanese website Digitimes that the new processors are likely to be cheaper than the current models, a sign perhaps that Intel is looking to compete directly with ARM in the low-end market.

The same sources apparently expect the CPUs to be priced between $15 and $20, about $12 than the current models.

In the past, Intel is said to have offered subsidies on its Bay Trail-T processors – including discounts for OEMs on bulk ordering – but prices supposedly remained more expensive than ARM-based quad-core processors from the likes of Nvidia, Qualcomm and Mediatek.

Qualcomm gets in the smartwatch game with Android-powered Toq

Like other smartwatches on the market, Toq doesn't have the full functionality of a smartphone or tablet. Instead, it syncs with your smartphone, letting you quickly scan through texts, phone calls, and other alerts, such as calendar and WhatsApp notifications, without having to pull your phone out. 

But unlike some of its big component customers like Samsung (which just unveiled its own Galaxy Gear wearable, and Apple (widely expected to join the smartwatch fray with its own branded iWatch), Qualcomm has a different agenda than trying to become the big kahuna of the emerging smartwatch market. 

"We're not trying to be a consumer electronics [...]

Mysterious Amazon tablet appears online with hi-res display

Specifications from GFXBench seemingly reveal an Amazon tablet with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, Android 4.2.2 and the Qualcomm Adreno 330 graphics processor, which would likely mean that the device would run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 chipset.

These specs appear to correlate with a recent report from Boy Genius Report. Citing “multiple trusted sources”, the tech blog last month claimed that Amazon is to launch three new Kindle Fire tablets this fall, including an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display and a Snapdragon 800 processor.

BlackBerry looks set to push ahead with Z30 phablet plans

The Z30 smartphone is rumored to have a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with (1,280 x 720 resolution) which is big enough to be considered one of the new generation of over-sized smartphone/kind-of-a-tablet devices that are often referred to as a phablet.

The Z30 will run the latest version of the BlackBerry OS (vers. 10.2), powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a large (2800 mAh) rechargeable battery inside.

Nokia to launch Windows 8 tablet next month?

WPCentral received an anonymous tip on Thursday with the source claiming that Nokia is to hold a press event in New York City on September 26 and 27.

With the Finnish handset maker having recently introduced the high-end Lumia 1020 smartphone and mid-range Lumia 625 phablet, the article suggests that the firm could take the wraps off its first tablet.

If that were the case, the tablet would more than likely run Windows 8 rather than Windows RT.

The ARM-powered version of Windows 8 was widely-publicized to be running on a prototype Nokia tablet for some time, with a recent benchmark seemingly confirming the existence of a Nokia tablet with Windows RT and [...]
